The SpaceAesthetics: I love the aesthetics of this space! My warm aesthetic sensibility combines natural materials and objects of true historical and artistic value to create a tapestry of organic textures married by earthtones. Unlike most airbnb listings this apartment is decorated with objects, art, and even furniture that are genuine and even one of a kind. Most things you will find have stories and I hopefully a few spark your curiosity: some have personal stories, some have stories I don't know, a few are even family heirlooms. Some things I collected from around the world, some things I made, some things were made by friends, some things I found here in Brooklyn. I'm proud to offer this space as a rich expression of my design sensibility and a reflection of my passion for stories and art. OVERVIEW: The apartment is on the ground floor of a 3 story house. It has a really nice unique handcrafted feel to it that makes it very welcoming. It's more than just a furnished rental; it offers a range of activities and amenities along with an aesthetic experience that guests really appreciate. The space is one big room with a bedroom area in the front separated from the roomy living-room and well equipped kitchen area by thick wood panels and heavy white curtains for added privacy. In the back there is a door to the yard and another that leads to the renovated bathroom which is buffered by a small hallway space for increased privacy. It's a very airy and open space and not at all stuffy. It has an air-conditioner for hot days and it's really warm and cozy on cold days. On nice days you can leave the backyard door open and enjoy some of the freshest air in Brooklyn (open the front and back doors to get great cross ventilation). BEDROOM: The front door opens directly into the bedroom area. Along with a very comfortable queen size bed for two the bedroom area includes a small desk table, a piano, love-seat, arm-chair and bookshelves. Near the door there are umbrellas, a matt and a cooler for picnics in the park as well a frisbee and and a jump rope. Around the desk are some neat guidebooks and books about New York City history and food and even some fiction set in the city and written by local authors. There's also a stack of New Yorker Magazines. The shelves are filled with all kinds of great books for kids and adults that span a huge array of subjects, genres, and age appropriateness. Want to write a letter or postcard? Why not type it on an old typewriter? Just make sure you hit each key hard :). Along with some board games,there are a few toys, and little musical instruments like a tambourine, drum, maracas, recorder flute. The piano is an octave off but sounds ok and whether you're a pro or not you might enjoy playing around with it. LIVING-ROOM & MORE BEDS: The very comfortable living-room has a twin size day-bed with a roll out trundle bed (both with real twin mattresses), a large comfortable sofa, a large 46 inch T.V., and a stereo. There's plenty of space for your luggage including a wardrobe with hangers for hanging clothes. The TV is connected to a Roku 3 for streaming lots of channels: I provide complimentary Netflix and Amazon Prime (you can also rent movies from amazon if you leave me the money). You will also find a variety of free channels for News, Weather, old films and independent films and videos on touring New York City. Along with the stereo you will find a large collection of CD's and many records and a cord for plugging in your digital device to stream music. Don't forget to explore the radio. When I travel I like exploring the radio stations because I often learn something about the people who live in a place from what radio stations are playing. I even provide a list of NYC radio stations so you can listen to what New Yorkers listen to. There's also enough room for doing Yoga and I even have a yoga mat for guests if that's your thing (there's also a yoga studio 1 block away). THE KITCHEN (super stocked!): Enjoy the full kitchen complete with lots of complimentary foods. The kitchen is perfect for cooking elaborate meals or preparing simple snacks and breakfast items. There are lots of pots and pans and kitchen supplies and appliances for those who like to cook (toaster, microwave, electric kettle, french press, juicer, hot air popcorn popper, blender). The kitchen table has comfortable wooden stools around it and is large enough to seat a group of 6 or to spread out a map and is a another great workspace. (URL HIDDEN) Food Included: I provide coffee, regular and herbal tea, hot chocolate, waffels, oatmeal, cheerios, bread, strawberry jam, grape jelly, butter, real maple syrup, honey, dark chocolate chips, olive oil, peanut butter, Nutella, raisins and condiments including mayonnaise, ketchup, mustard, miso, lemon juice. You'll also find all kinds of other goodies. BATHROOM: The recently renovated bathroom has a great shower, a hair dryer, and a variety of natural body washes to suit your mood. I also provide body lotion, disposable tooth brushes, single use packets of tooth-paste, and individually wrapped packets of floss, body lotion, sunblock, insect repellant, and natural air-fresheners (of course there is soft 2 ply toilet paper). BACKYARD: The backyard has multiple areas to enjoy. There a table and chairs directly outside the door and further on there's a bench and then a more open space with a glass table and larger chairs covered by a large maple tree and surrounded by a variety bushes and a wall of ivy. It's a great place to eat, read a book, work, write an email or smoke. There's also a small Weber charcoal grill for use in the yard (it's also light enough to bring to the park!). Guest AccessLimited Access: WASHING CLOTHES: The washer/dryer is behind the locked door in the room leading to the bathroom. It's locked to guests but I'm always happy to do your laundry for you if I'm around (just ask). If I'm around I'll tell you to leave you dirty laundry by the door in the back room and I'll grab it, wash and dry it and leave it where you left it. Alternatively there's a laundromat 2 blocks away and also a dry cleaners and 3 blocks away there is a full service wash and fold place where you can drop your laundry off and pick it up later. There's plenty of places for your luggage and to unpack and hang clothes. There are a couple of closets that are locked but otherwise place is all yours. Interaction with GuestsI will do my best to greet you when you arrive. At times when I can't be there to introduce myself and the space when you arrive I'll give you a code for the lock and ask you to let yourself in. I'll always be available if you call or message me with any questions or requests or if there is any problem or emergency (if I can't be available for any reason I'll have a friend who is). While I enjoy meeting and getting to know my guests and I like helping in any way I can, unless you contact me after check-in you probably wont hear much from me until the day before check-out although (for longer stays I may text you to ask how things are going). Also you may run into me or my parents outside because they live upstairs and I'm often around. I'm pretty knowledgable about the city (I grew up here) so tell me what you're interested in and I'll probably have plenty of suggestions. The NeighborhoodWindsor Terrace is such a great neighborhood and the apartment is 2 blocks away from the abutting and better known Park Slope neighborhood. There's quick access by subway to Manhattan but there's also amazing access to the best parts of Brooklyn! The house is 2 blocks from the subway (the F and G trains at 15th street), one block from Prospect park in two direction and a few blocks from the beautiful and historic Greenwood cemetery, which is aptly named because it is large, green, and filled with beautiful trees. When I get out of the subway often I take a deep breath and enjoy the lovely fresh clean air (which often smells like flowers) and I smile. The quiet residential streets are punctuated every two blocks by avenues of bustling small business offering an array of restaurants, food grocers, boutique stores and other independent business including coffee shops, bars, clothing stores, pharmacies, and more. The neighborhood is perfect. The quiet, charming and very safe streets are lined with very sweet single family brick houses many of which have a variety of greenery in front, and with fast direct access to Manhattan (15 minutes to downtown, 20 to china town, 25 to SoHo or the East Village, 30 to the West Village and 40 to midtown) it's hard to imagine New York City (in many ways the most important and iconic city on earth) feeling more like home. It's really one of (if not the best) neighborhoods in Brooklyn. While you might be visiting New York primarily to see Manhattan, even though I've spent most of my life working and going to school in Manhattan, as a Brooklyn native I feel the need to mention how great and important Brooklyn is in and of itself. If Brooklyn were it's own city, rather then 1 of the 5 borough of New York it would be the the 4th largest in population (first being the 4 other boroughs combined) and 2nd largest in area in the whole U.S.. Manhattan is a tiny island and Brooklyn is its crown jewel. That being said, aside from being close to Manhattan it's also right next to the best park in Brooklyn and possibly the best park in all of NYC ( The designer, Holmstead, who also designed central park said so but it continues to a be a source of Brooklyn vs. Manhattan rivalry). In any event the park offers many activities and is lots of fun and is great place if you want to go for a bike ride, a walk, a run, a horse back ride, rent a paddle boat, go roller skating (or ice skating in the winter) have a picnic, play Tennis, feed the ducks or wake up early and walk down Long Meadow (the longest meadow of any parkland in the U.S.) and watch thousands of dogs run free. You can also take a nice walk to the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens, the Prospect Park Zoo or the biggest and best art museum in the borough: The Brooklyn Museum (among the best art museums in NYC and it's free! Plus they have free music/dance parties the first Saturday of every month). During the summer it's not uncommon to step out the door and hear the faint sound of music resonating from the prospect park bandshell, which offers free concerts of all types of music including some pretty big names ((SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) "Celebrate Brooklyn" for the calendar). If you're looking for new foods you might also walk 20 minutes across the park to Lefferts Garden and grab a West Indian Roti (a large burrito or wrap made from a mix of wheat and chick-pea flour and filled with your choice of a variety of delicious ingredients). There are 3 farmers markets within walking distance. On Sunday and Wednesday it is three blocks and on Saturday the second largest farmers market in NYC is a pleasant 20 minute walk through the park. There are also plenty of restaurants, cafes and bars and grocers two blocks away on Prospect Park West/9th avenue. 4 blocks away, on 7th avenue, is the main commercial strip of Park Slope where you can find an endless array of relaxing bars, high end specialty grocers, restaurants, and boutique shops. If you like biking you can rent bikes 2 block away (there's a Citi bike station) and bike to Coney Island along a tree lined bike path (totally separate from the road with cars it is lined with benches adjacent to a pedestrian path) 45 minutes (35 by train) all the way down Ocean Avenue to Coney Island where you can go swimming, ride on the world famous "Wonder Wheel" or the old wooden roller coaster the "Cyclone" or the newer bigger roller coasters or check out the aquarium. On the way you might also stop for lunch at a Hasidic Jewish restaurant in Borough Park or get Russian food near the ocean in Brighton Beach. There's a movie theatre 3 blocks away which shows the latests and greatest big budget films. If you're looking for art house films it's also a short train or bike ride to BAM (Brooklyn Academy of Music) where you can see great new independent films, classic retrospectives, as well as world class plays (often with famous actors) or world class dance from the best dance companies around the world (across the street there's also the new "Theatre For a New Audience" which performs mostly Shakespeare). Lincoln Center is great and Broadway shows can be cool, but I've been to theatre across the country and in many places in Europe and BAM is no joke. If you're taking the train to Manhattan you probably want to jump off at York street and take a quick trip to the new Brooklyn Bridge Park which, besides being a beautiful park offers beautiful views of the Manhattan skyline, and chamber music concerts on a barge (with free concerts on Saturday afternoons). All in all the neighborhood is among the best neighborhoods in New York depending on what you're looking for in a neighborhood. If you want to step out the door to the noisy (usually dirty, loud, and often smelly) commotion of the bustling city then you probably want to stay in Manhattan, but if you want to be close to that but come home to a safe place with friendly people and plenty of activities close at your finger tips then this is the place for you! Really no other neighborhood in NYC has what this neighborhood has. Most other neighborhood in Brooklyn are either bleak and industrial with not enough green space or are filled with condos or don't have good parking or don't have fast subway access to Manhattan or have too much traffic or too much noise or too much crime. Oh, if you're coming with a car the parking is some of the best in the city because the alternate side of the street parking is only once a week instead of twice a week/everyday like almost every other place in the city the there's plenty of parking on the street. Getting AroundOk, like I said, it's two block from the subway (the F and G train at 15th street station). You can get to the East Village or Greenwich village in 25-30 minutes door to door and Columbus Circle at 59th Street (where central park begins) is 50 minutes. You can take the G train direct to Williamsburg or Green Point in 30 minutes. Want a car service? I suggest Arecibo or you can usually get an uber usually not more than 3 minutes away. In the unlikely event that you like driving everywhere (like my mother) it's also really fast access by car to Manhattan, especially if you take the Brooklyn Battery Tunnel which usually means you can get almost anywhere in Manhattan (like uptown) with fairly little traffic in 30 to 40 minutes or much less depending on where you are going (Like 10 minutes to lower Manhattan midday) but finding parking is a different story and depending on where and how long you want to drive in circles you should expect to pay a premium to park at a garage: but of course you might get lucky and it depends on the neighborhood and the time of day. Also, there's plenty of stuff to enjoy within walking distance and you couldn't ask for a better starting point if you're looking to explore the city by bike, which is my preferred means of transportation for any place in Brooklyn simply because there are so many bike paths and I love getting to ride through so many neighborhoods. Pretty much for any place in Brooklyn or Manhattan going by bike or train takes about the same amount of time (by bike you see the city but depending on how many places you're going renting a bike will probably cost more). Driving can take more or less or the same amount of time depending on traffic but in most places in Manhattan, if you're looking for free parking, it wont take less time and if you pay for parking it will cost a lot more. Other Things to NoteLIGHT: While the apartment doesn't get a lot of natural light because the only windows are the front door, the backyard door and the bathroom window their are a variety of nice lighting choices so it doesn't feel dark unless you want it to. Enjoy the bright overhead sunlight spectrum bulbs (great during daytime hours) and the various incandescent spectrum lamps (when you want a warm ambiance for relaxing). ACCESSIBILITY: The apartment isn't quite wheel chair accessible because there is a very small step at the front door and a small step into the bathroom. If you have any special needs let me know. NOISE (mostly very quiet): 1) It has now been some 2 years since a guest has mentioned this. The floors above: My parents aren't around much, but Monday-Thursday there is occasionally some noise (from footsteps) from the floors above which are a bit creaky. I think it's pretty muted and usually pretty occasional. The 4 days a week that my parent's live upstairs they are often out or on the third floor and only part of the second floor (the dining room and TV room) is overhead but it's worth noting and I invite guests to let me know if it's bothering them (only a few people over a year ago have ever mentioned it and only after their stay). It's an old house (built in the 1920's) and the floors upstairs are parquet so they creak a bit, that's all. It never bothered me when I lived there or woke me or any of my friends up and I didn't even think to mention it until someone commented about it. It's usually pretty quiet, and the noise is usually soft and seldom. 2) It's quite rare that you will hear it at all but over 2 years ago a guest commented that they heard the faint rumble of the subway. It's so faint (kind of like a distant cell phone vibrating and very distant rumble of thunder) that seldom happen (usually only a few times a week) and I hardly think it needs mentioning but if you experience it without knowing it might be confusing. The faint rumble comes from a special express track that is used if the trains are running abnormally because they are doing track work or occasionally during rush hour if the trains are backed up and they need to skip stops to catch up. It's super subtle (the kind of subtle that can easily pass by without you noticing and not the kind that even a light sleeper will ever wake up from). If you notice it you might pause a moment and then ask, "what is that?". I've had friends do that a few times over the 15 or so years I lived in the space. It's like faint 3 to 8 seconds (depending on how long the train is) rattle that of a very distant barely audible thunder. Often the track isn't used for weeks and sometimes you get a few trains in a row over the course of a few hours. I've been told that it's an endearing gentle reminder of the cities beating heart (lest you forget the bustling of human lives, stories, struggles, hopes, dreams, joys, and hardships that surround you). For the most part I consider the place exceptionally quiet.

The SpaceWelcome to my home! I live in a beautiful, 2-bedroom/2-bath apartment across the street from Prospect Park in Windsor Terrace, two blocks from Park Slope in Brooklyn. The room has a queen-sized bed and private bathroom. The room is large enough to accommodate an air mattress (you need to supply your own). This is a large loft which affords privacy to all. There is a ceiling fan, heat/air conditioner, network TV, and free wireless internet. This is an upscale, friendly neighborhood convenient to public transportation. An 8 minute walk to the F/G subways takes you to downtown Manhattan or Fort Green and Williamsburg in 30 minutes. Across the street is the #68 bus which takes you to Coney Island and Brighton Beach. There are numerous restaurants, coffee shops and markets in the neighborhood! Walk across the street to Prospect Park and wander the paths, run/walk the 3+ mile loop, or sit and enjoy the lake.

The SpaceThe apartment is on the 5th floor of an pre-war elevator building, with windows on two sides, so there plenty of light. At night you can see the moon through the bedroom window. It's generally quiet, though you do great the occasional footstep from the above neighbors. The space is decorated with an art deco style with antiques throughout. Everything is designed with comfort in mind. There is a down comforter with duvet and a tempurpedic queen sized bed with super soft linens. During warmer weather there is a buttery matelesse coverlet. Ceiling fans and window unit air conditioning are in both rooms, as are steam radiators. Both radiators can be turned off if it gets too warm, by twisting the knob at the base. The ceiling fans are operated by pulling the hanging chains, as are the lights associated with the fans. There is a shared full bathroom with every toiletry you can think of, a living room, and kitchen. The daybed in the living room is off limits, as that is where I sleep. There are a combination of hardwood and Flor area rugs throughout, everything is kept very clean and organized. The shower is turned on by twisting the large triangular pull, there in no need to touch the lever underneath. That should stay to the left. If the shower doesn't drain, check in between the sink and the tub, there is a knob labeled "waste". Make sure that is pulled up. (Pre-war building, charming!) My apologies, but my home is not appropriate for children under 12. Guest AccessGuests have access to the living room, (except the daybed) full kitchen with assorted small appliances (coffee maker/ grinder, toaster oven, soda stream, panini press, food processor, blender, microwave) full bath with tub, (bubble bath and salts,) fresh linens and towels, assorted toiletries, steamer, iron, hair dryer, laundry room, closet, and a dresser drawer. Unlimited high speed WiFi is included, as is access to roku with channels such as amazon, Hulu, netflix, and Pandora. There's also a Precor elliptical machine and some light dumbbells for those who want to workout. The park is also a stone's throw away. My goal is to make your stay as comfortable as possible, and to that end, if you've forgotten anything or need to borrow something like a chair or blanket for the park, umbrella for the rain, or even a tool of some sort, I will do my best to accommodate you. Interaction with GuestsPrior to your stay, I'll ask for a list of any special food you need such as cream for coffee or a specific snack you prefer. I will do my best to accommodate and make you feel at home. We'll be roommates during your stay, and I'll be sleeping in the living room on the daybed and sharing the bath and kitchen. The daybed is off limits, but you're welcome to spend time in the living room, as well. There is a desk that doubles as a place to eat. There's an elliptical exercise machine if you want to workout. I will be available to answer questions personally, or via email and text, but I'm generally out of the apartment a lot working and socializing. I've lived here for over 20 years and I can tell you all kinds of great things about New York from where to eat to where to shop and walk around or what show to see. I really enjoy meeting guests and helping them find the perfect places to enhance their travel experience. The NeighborhoodMy neighborhood is awesome, I live right next to one of the most beautiful parks in NYC. People are really friendly, there are some good restaurants within a few blocks, the Brooklyn museum and Botanical gardens are a mile away, Coney Island and the Boardwalk are 5 miles away, the Brooklyn Flea market, Brooklyn Bridge and Barclay Stadium are 2 miles away. There's also this small town called New York City that's only 20 minutes away, and I hear good things. Getting AroundThe F and G subway lines are 4 blocks away, and Manhattan is 15-20 minutes via subway. Williamsburg is accessible via the G line to Metropolitan Avenue. There is free parking on the street, and a subway and bus combination will get you from the airports to my place, just tell me which airport you're coming from! Car services are plentiful and very easy to get, either Uber, Lyft, or local companies like Eastern car service are just a phone call away and they'll take you anywhere your heart desires. Other Things to NotePlease note that I will be staying in the apartment's living room during your stay on the daybed, and we will be sharing a bathroom.

Walk to 5th, 6th or 8th Avenues, and you'll find a huge range of restaurants, bars, shops and other amenities all the way north to Downtown Brooklyn and Fort Greene. The G train is convenient for Williamsburg, and the F train takes you to all the best places, including Cobble Hill, Downtown Brooklyn, the Lower East Side, Soho, Little Italy and the West Village.

The SpaceI live in a one bedroom with my 1.5 year old son. We share a bedroom, so the living room is available. There are two couches in the living. One is large and can very comfortably accommodate an adult. The other is smaller and would probably be better for a child. So I have space for one adult and one child. Also it is important to know that we are pretty early risers in our house- or I should say my son is and I follow his lead. We are near the F and G trains as well as the B68 and B61 buses.
